The event will support AFC’s activities held throughout the West Hartford area for children, teens, and young adults on the autism spectrum and their families.


Autism Families CONNECTicut (AFC) is celebrating its ninth Anniversary with its annual fundraising event, A Sparkling Celebration, on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at The Simsbury Inn in Simsbury, CT.

The evening will be filled with fabulous food, cocktails, live and silent auction opportunities, music, and dancing – all to raise money to support recreational and social programs designed specifically for individuals on the autism spectrum.

AFC is thrilled to welcome Len Besthoff, Chief Investigative Reporter for the NBC Connecticut Investigates team as our celebrity emcee. We also welcome back iHeartRadio’s The River 105.9 personality Renee DiNino as our celebrity auctioneer, and live entertainment will again be provided by John Saville Entertainment.

We are also excited to announce that Connecticut resident and friend and supporter of AFC Wayne Carini, host of Velocity Channel’s Chasing Classic Cars and owner of local F40 Motorsports, will be returning this year as A Sparkling Celebration’s celebrity guest.

Registration is now open, and click here to register online.

Please join us for this incredible evening of giving and to learn more about Autism Families CONNECTicut’s mission.
